Sin in a bowl...

Doesn't this look dreamy?!

Mel made this goodness for our Life Group game night this week :-) Yumm - O. What a great way to use those fresh seasonal strawberries that have been popping up on sale all over the place!

Sin in a bowl (aka Strawberries and chocolate)
- Mel Bennett


  • 8" pan of brownies
  • 2 small packages instant chocolate pudding
  • 3 cups milk
  • large tub cool whip
  • 1 lb strawberries, sliced (or raspberries)

Bake the brownies, and let them cool.

Mix the pudding mix with 3 cups milk; allow the pudding to set.  Then, add in 1 cup of cool whip.

Break the brownies into one inch pieces and place 1/2 of them on the bottom of the bowl. Spread 1/2 of the pudding mix over the brownies. Spread 1/2 of the remaining cool whip over the pudding mix. Spread 1/2 of the strawberries over the cool whip.

Repeat all the layers one more time. Keep chilled until ready to serve.

Mel says she likes to make this about 8 hours ahead of time as the brownies have more time to absorb the pudding, however it is still yummy if you eat it right away. A clear bowl is nice so people can see the layers and know what they are looking at ahead of time.

  1. This look so good! I love the chocolate and strawberry combo. I wish my strawberries wouldn't have been duds this year :(

  2. To answer your question: Yes, it does look dreamy. That's too good to be true, super yummy and easy. Wow!!

  3. I make the same thing with raspberries. (Or you can skip the fruit all together and use crumbled up Heath bars...but then it's called "Death by Chocolate") Looks delicious!!

  4. That looks super yummy~!! I will definitely have to try this.

  5. Wow! This looks wonderful! I love the photos on your recipes! Makes me want to run into the kitchen and start cooking!
